Mother’s Day Dos and Don’ts

Mother’s Day is this Sunday! The perfect opportunity, for all of us, to show the special mom in our lives how much we appreciate the effortless, wonderful way in which she pays attention to the little details that make our lives easier and happier. To celebrate her day, her month, here are some dos and don’ts to show mom how much you appreciate who she is, and all that she does.

Do: If your mother works, then Saturday and Sunday are usually the days she spends cleaning. Tell her that this weekend you are going to clean the house. Get the entire family involved.  Assign chores to each family member beforehand to eliminate possible bickering.

The Mommy PendantDon’t:  Let her “help” with the chores, even if she insists. If there is a younger sibling in the household, then the older sibling(s) need to help them a little, or better yet assign them chores that are age appropriate.

Do:  Breakfast in bed. It is fun to present her with a handmade menu. On the menu be sure to list her favorite foods and drinks.  Fresh flowers on the serving tray are a nice touch as well.

Don’t:  Be unprepared. Be sure to shop for everything a couple of days in advance, especially if you plan to bake something fresh as these take longer than ready-made store bought baked goods. If you design your own menu, or have a special decoration in mind, then this should be prepared beforehand, as well.

Do:  Participate in the Mommy Pendant, “May is for Mommies” sweepstakes. It is easy to enter, just go to the Mommy Pendant Facebook page and follow the directions.
